Yo-Yo Temperatures in NYC this Week

The temperature reached 71°F in New York City yesterday afternoon.  That is 24°F above normal.  I had to remind myself that it is still, technically, winter.

Overnight, however, a cold front moved through, bringing temperatures back to more seasonable levels.  These relatively cool conditions will not last long, though.  The forecast is calling for a return to above average temperatures in the mid-60’s by early next week.

The infamous yo-yo temperatures of March seem to be in full swing.

Note: Data for 3/10 is based on forecast temperature.
